After my post?  No after he sees all of the tools that make up Michigans fan base, based on all the moronic posts and down voting, what little chance we might have had is gone.

One bit about press conference blather.  I would just as soon not hear anything about football.

Prove to me on the field this fall that the offensive line can block, the receivers can get open, we have a QB that isn't panic stricken and is accurate and the play calling isn't predictable.  Nothing you say makes me excited or hopeful.

02/09/2018 - 7:02am Elite Players Matter

One could argue that the only reason the previous 2 classes were top 10 was their size.  We are coming up short on elite talent every year, disturbingly so on the OL.  I know I'm not an expert like the homers here, but as far as I know, elite OL play is still required to win championships.

How do you win without great players?  How do you recruit great players without winning?  The bowl game was a disaster for this class, rightfully so or not, it made the coaching staff look incompetent.

Coach Beilein is the antithesis of everything MSU.  I am grateful for that.

Love the downvoting homers who are upset with the toxic fan base.  You just lap up that "We've got our best people on it" bullshit.

Please

01/02/2018 - 8:03am Gamecocks?

Peters slide short of the 1st down to keep the clock running pretty much sums up the poor coaching, lack of awareness and lack of toughness that has become Michigan football.  I lost interest early this year when it was obvious how awful the O-line was.  Our recruiting class is 2nd rate, there are no OL solutions for next year.  Harbaugh should be on the hot seat right now.  The students stopped caring 10 years ago, I'm about to do the same.

11/28/2017 - 3:35pm As for Upshaw, congrats and

As for Upshaw, congrats and definitely has very high sleeper potential.

As for the 18 class, well just like the 17, 16, 15 classes, where are the OL.  A couple in each class isn't good enough.  This is why this team is what it is and it can't change without more elite OL commits. 3 TE's isn't a fix.

'Improved' against Rutgers, Minnesota and Maryland?  C'mon son.

11/18/2017 - 7:07pm OL has been consistently bad all year

Those who thought they were seeing 'improved' OL play were seeing a mirage due to crappy opponents.  Michigan QB's are paying the price.  Sad to see absolutley no improvement from game to game.  Go ahead and down vote me homers, I could care less.  Stupid system anyway.  Penalize someone for stating the obvious truth because homers get butthurt by it.

Get ready for an embarrasing beat down next week.

11/16/2017 - 9:23pm Believe In Miracles?

8 wins against opponents with a combined 26-49 record, none of which have winning records.  One win required overtime heroics.

2 losses against teams with a 15-5 combined record, one of which was an embarrasing blowout.

8-4.  Which is what I thought before the season started.

11/07/2017 - 7:02pm I was there

I remember three things.

McQuerry looking terrible, running for his life getting sacked 3 times on the opening possesion.  I had a pretty good feeling at that point. McQuerry...Joe Pa...who knew.

The hit.  It was the loudest hit I've ever heard at a game.  It silenced the entire crowd before it was obvious that neither player was moving.

The 4th and 10 on the last PSU drive.  We swore it was an 8 yard completion, then the referee looked at the chains and took two more steps and signaled 1st down.  We were laughing our asses off, so obvious that Joe Pa wasn't going to get shutout at home.

10/11/2017 - 3:52pm Obvious?

Which 2 aspects of this team are flat out disappoining? OL play and playcalling. Hmmmm.

They'll take away your 'points' for saying the O-line is bad.

With a porous O-line that has regressed every week, how could you not pick the mobile QB as the starter?  Speight was good last year only behind a servicable O-line that included Newsome.  When Newsome went down, Speight then got hurt, and under pressure Speight unravelled.  Until (if?) the O-line stops allowing jailbreaks, O'Korn has shown the ability to escape the pressure.  Case closed.

Isn't this the point where the true homers start in with "but the coaching staff are geniuses, they'll figure it out"?

08/26/2017 - 7:50am Confirmed Keg

We did bring a full 1/2 barrel keg to the 1981 NW game.  Carried it up Main to the NW entrance, where we were told we couldn't bring it in because it would take up a seat.  Turned around and bought a ticket for $1.  Went back to the same guy and said the keg has a ticket now.  He shrugs his shoulders and says OK.  We sold beers for $1 to a large swath sitting around us.  Good times.

We struggled this year due to OL line play.  Every loss was due to the OL.   OL has the highest bust rate and longest development time of any position.  Every recruiting class needs at least 5 4 stars to play the odds.

Just not excited. Our OL is neither talented or deep and this class barely addresses that.

03/19/2016 - 9:52am Fault?

As in Levert's leg and Spike's hips?

03/19/2016 - 8:53am In The End, An OK Year

Same problems that have plagued this team all year.

Post player stone hands, inability to catch passes and secure rebounds.

Post inability to finish at the rim (I got tired of screaming just dunk it).

Mindless turnovers.

Scoring draughts that happened too frequently and lasted too long.

Offense that breaks down into 1 on 1 playground ball with hurried shots late in the shot clock.

On the plus side the defense showed improvement late in the year and was generrating many more steals.

Tough year with the losses of Caris and Spike, the bench wasn't deep enough to compensate and the starters had to play way too many minutes as a result.  I'm sure the fall off in FG% in the last month was due to fatigue.  I thought they looked tired starting by mid-Feb.

Great they got into the dance and won one.  All in all not a bad year with the hand they were dealt, always a fun, if frustrating (at times) group to watch.  Go Blue.

02/11/2016 - 6:11am Zak

Rough outing.  Not just shooting, either.  Hopefully a one of, like Caris at SMU.

 

BTN had a stat that we are winless against ranked opponents.  MD?

 

Fun to watch a player feeling it like D was in the 1st half.  The 3 at the 4:20 mark he turned to run back upcourt the instant the shot left his hand and never looked back at it.

Same issues we've always had, post foul rate, post rebounding, post finishing at the rim.  Improve these just some and this game is close.

Oh, and Xavier was very good.  If you look at the stat lines, the game was lost on the boards and free throw line.
